If you want to test it yourself, Call of Duty expert Ears on YouTube has you covered. He recently shared a video going over the best Striker class MW3 has to offer and with the gameplay to prove it.

The best Striker class MW3 players need to use

Ears claims this is the “absolute best and fasting killing Striker class.”

Jumping into the attachments for the best Striker class MW3 edition, Ears opts for the Lachmann Recon Series Stock for a big boost to firing aim stability, gun kick control, and aiming idle sway with a somewhat smaller increase to recoil control. It does come at the cost of speed in several areas, however.

Next up is the Cronen Mini Pro optic due to not liking the iron sights on the Striker. This will provide a better precision sight picture to make sure you’re able to ADS and spot your enemies even at range.

For the barrel, the Striker Recon Long makes the cut. This barrel gives increased bullet velocity and range in addition to more aiming idle sway benefits. Your hipfire and Tac Stance spread will suffer because of this, though, in addition to some speed loss.

There are two options when it comes to the muzzle for the best Striker class MW3, according to Ears. You can run either the Shadowstrike Suppressor S or the XTEN Black Kite. While the latter provides more benefits, it also comes with more cons, so you’ll have to decide for yourself.

And lastly, the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop comes in for the underbarrel slot thanks to improved sprint-to-fire and aim-down-sight speed in addition to vertical recoil and gun kick control.
